Michalek (undisclosed) will play Wednesday against the Ottawa Sun reports. Michalek suffered an undisclosed injury Tuesday when he was hit by a shot in practice, but the 30-year-old winger indicated Wednesday "It's fine, it's just a bruise." Fortunately, that's all the damage inflicted, and he will take the ice for the Senators, and is expected to slot alongside Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Alex Chiasson on the Senators' third line.
Michalek was hit bay a shot in practice Tuesday, and is questionable for Wednesday's tilt against the Flames with an undisclosed injury, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports. The Senators plan to reevaluate Michalek on Wednesday to determine whether or not the 30-year-old winger will be healthy enough to suit up for Wednesday's matchup with Calgary after getting dinged up in practice Tuesday. His availability for the contest should be confirmed prior to puck drop Wednesday night.
Michalek scored Ottawa's third goal of the night in the Senators 4-3 win over Toronto Saturday night. Michalek had a slow start to the season against Buffalo last Thursday with only one shot on goal and 14 minutes of ice-time. Michalek bounced back Saturday night with a hard earned goal in front of the net. The goal lifted Ottawa to a 3-0 commanding lead. Instead of a nail in the coffin goal - the goal kept Ottawa in the game and allowed Ottawa to send the game to overtime and win in the shoot-out.
Michalek mustered only one shot on goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over Buffalo. The Sens forward had zero points and logged less than fifteen minutes of ice time. Michalek skated for a meager 14 minutes and five seconds in Ottawa's season opener at Buffalo. The Senators forward was only able to tally a single shot on goal. Michalek did not see any ice time on the power play and appears to be implemented as a relief player at best.
Milan Michalek contributed one assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over Montreal.
